Fabulous atmosphere, lovely interesting surroundings and food all made on premises. Menu mostly made up of focaccia sandwiches with delicious fillings and sweet delicacies. Apparently very good coffee too. We will be back next time we are in Rotorua.

We only discovered this wonderful cafe thanks to Tripadvisor. It's a bit of a destination cafe, being in the middle of a light industrial area. But a very laid-back feel, efficient staff and excellent coffee. And above all superb bread in their sandwiches and excellent...pastries. Definitely worth finding.More

Had lunch here last week. Very friendly welcoming staff, fabulous food (as always), nice coffee / tea, good atmosphere And an area where you can sit with your dog But also non-dog areas for those who prefer. Totally recommend.

I don't recall when exactly we stumbled across this magnificent haven of sandwiches, probably a couple of years ago, but every single time we always try something new and are amazed at how versatile their menu is. Our staples have always been the sandwiches,. We've...never been able to find anything that could remotely rival the taste and combination of bread as this place. It is tucked away and near impossible to find if you aren't explicitly looking for it, but once when find it, I'm certain you won't leave unsatisfied. Our most recent visit was a few days ago on our return trip back to Auckland, we also noticed they have a beautiful mural/abstract painting outside on the wall at the back of their car park area - we enjoyed a long chat with the amazingly talented artist Warren/Wozz and look forward to returning to see his finished masterpiece - he was still adding the Ciabatta branding to the full-sized mural. I can't wait for our next excuse to come and have some more awesome kai. Nathan & MeganMore

We visited this place because of the feedback on TripAdvisor and we weren’t disappointed. Located in an industrial area the place doesn’t look very impressive (or big) from the outside, inside however it’s a hive of activity (and deliciousness). The bacon and egg sandwich was...so tasty (and generously sized). The kids shared a cronut (#heavenly apparently) and long dog (#the-dog-of-my-dreams apparently). Topped off with a giant pretzel 🥨 to take away (again fantastic). The service was friendly and helpful. My only regret is that we don’t live closer...More

We come here for breakfast every time we visit Rotorua, it’s become a tradition! I can’t even explain how fantastic the food is and the staff are also incredibly friendly. If you don’t visit this place while in Rotorua, you’re seriously missing out

Super fresh and yummy ingredients! The chookie and hammie were favourites, super filling and perfect for lunch. We followed it up with a apple and cinnamon cronut which was a great balance of sweet, light and fluffy!

really friendly service. And the rolls and pastries we had were fresh and yummy, not all cold and wrapped in plastic as is so often the case. Also portions not too huge. Glad we found out about this place.
